Denny, Pheiffer and Max, African lion cubs all born in early to mid 1997, arrived at PAWS in December of 1997. Purchased by individuals from pet stores as babies, all were victims of the exotic animal trade. Each had been declawed and defanged, and each suffered from malformed joints and had permanent damage to all four paws as a result of the way they were declawed.

Denny was confiscated by the Detroit Police Department's Harbormaster Division on Belle Isle when they discovered his owner jogging with him in the park. Denny was sent to the Detroit Zoological Park on September 14, 1997.

Pheiffer and Max were rescued by the Michigan Anti-Cruelty Society and also taken to the Detroit Zoological Park on September 24, 1997.
Detroit Zoo sent the three cubs to PAWS in December of that year.

Max, the most fragile of the three, died nearly 10 years ago. Denny and Pheiffer continue to live at our Galt, California, sanctuary. PAWS director, Ed Stewart, shot this video of Denny and Pheiffer in January, 2012. Notice Denny's front feet.
